UMI Z - Anybody good?

Really tempted to pick one of these up. Reviews seem pretty good considering the price. Anybody picked one up yet?

Umi = great design & shoddy quality control, with really poor repair and return times.

I bought a Zero - it was broken out of the box (gps failure), the replacement took SIX months to arrive, and broke 5 minutes after unboxing (SIM card ejector failed on 2nd use)

ive taken the plunge and ordered one from banggood for £179 still waiting to be delivered hope i avoid the import tax!!!

Not sure I'd trust them after the Umi Hammer battery porkie..

Can't see any legit reviews online - they all seem like they might be 'bought' reviews. Where are you looking?

I've got a budget of between £200 - £300 and ideally I'd be looking for the following specs -

Expandable Memory (Micro SD)
At least 2GB RAM
1080p HD Screen
Snapdragon 800+
12mp camera

Not sure If there's anything available for my price range?

I bought the P2 from Three for £200 and it's now my favourite Android phone after the S7. It has a Snapdragon 625 (only released last year) which I believe is better than the Snapdragon 808 for everyday performance but a little less powerful for gaming. I wouldn't personally use a device with a Snapdragon 810 again, having owned a 6P and a Z5 and Z5 compact, which all overheated and had pretty poor battery life.

In day to day performance I'm finding the P2 smooth as silk, the camera (13mp) is decent in good light (I don't think any of these Chinese phones will have particularly amazing cameras though, no matter what their websites say). It has a front home button with fingerprint scanner, which I love, amazing battery, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with the option of expandable storage (with an adoptive option) or an extra SIM card, and a nice cosy UK warranty from the Three Store to boot.

I'm enjoying it so much that I've considered selling my iPhone 7 and using it with my main SIM.

If you are all about the specs though you will get something that's better (on paper) from manufacturers like Umi.
